Testing potential transformers

Published April 1914

A method of testing instrument transformers by means of ordinary commercial testing instruments is described. It has to be remembered that from the practical point of view we need only take account of these errors in ratio or phase angle which produce a visible error in the reading of the indicating wattmeter. A wattmeter is taken and used in such a way that differences in ratio or phase angle of the transformer being tested and a standard transformer may be most readily detected. The method is very similar to that described by C. V. Drysdale. The experimental results given prove the accuracy of the method.
